In a recent development, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has terminated its association with Aloy Ejimakor, who was serving as Nnamdi Kanu’s counsel. The announcement was made by Emma Powerful, the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, stating that Ejimakor is no longer considered Kanu’s legal representative.
According to IPOB, Ejimakor made public claims connecting Simon Ekpa and his supporters to their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, which the group vehemently disputes. They clarified that Ejimakor was only one of the lawyers contracted for specific cases for Kanu and not the official legal representative of the entire Indigenous People of Biafra movement.
The group accused Ejimakor of misrepresenting their operations to the public and pursuing personal interests rather than genuinely supporting Nnamdi Kanu’s cause. They asserted that he lacks understanding of IPOB’s objectives and its modus operandi.
This termination comes as a significant development within IPOB and adds to the ongoing dynamics surrounding Nnamdi Kanu’s legal representation.
